Greetings Ranchers,

I have to write an online test system which dis-allows a candidate to access the keyboad by disabling it. As it is a web application, the candidate should see only the web browser window containing only the title bar. keyboard should be disabled so that the candidate is not able to use system keys such as Alt+tab, windows key, other hot keys etc.
Can anyone tell me how this can be acheived? If anyone knows of any useful link related to this kind of functionality, please give me the URL!!!
Moderators, pls comment...
I'm totally clueless about it... Please help.

Thanks In advance!!!

You should not allow any application to do such a thing. Personally, i would never want to use a web application(or any other application) which would block such keys. Why are you trying to block those keys?

All said, this question is more relevant in the HTML/Javascript forum.

You cannot do this on a web-based application.

Imagine the implications if this were possible - by visiting a web page, that web page takes control of your keyboard.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
